Has anyone heard any information on the well that Exco has been working on Elk Run Hunt Club. They have permits coming up on line saying they are working on gas lines but I have yet to hear any news about it besides that. Any body know anything Thanks Penny

That's a good point!
Hi! I talked to Exco who bought our lease from Chief and they said
Geokinetics does not represent them and if any damage is done to well or septic or home they are NOT responsible. In our lease it says the company leasing the land will do the testing and the person I spoke with said yes they will eventually do the testing and that the other company is trying to be the middle man and give us $5 an acre while they make a small fortune from Exco. If Exco does the testing they are liable for any damage that may occur. This way using Geokinetics they are not. We have not signed the agreement and do not plan on it until Exco is doing it or authorizing it.
Good question - Past seismic work in Davidson Twp was performed in the late 1970s by Geosource/PettyRay on Route 220 - it was 2D, using thumper trucks. Amoco was attempting to find structural traps throughout the Ridge and Valley and Allegheny Plateau Geological districts. Exxon and Texaco were acquiring leases in 1977 to drill a test well, but the bottom dropped out of the O&G market before a well could be drilled. In the mid 1980s, CNG/Texaco ran 2D seismic on the Muncy Creek Anticline in advance of drilling the 18,000' deep Leo Dieffenbach No. 1 test well on North Mountain. In the winter of 2008-2009, a 2D seismic line was run from New Albany to Dushore on Route 220, then Route 487 to Stillwater (south of Benton). Last summer, Tidelands Geophysical ran 3D seismic in northern Davidson Twp. Geokinetics is currently conducting a 3D survey throughout most of Davidson Twp. Geokinetics claims they are performing the work on behalf of several companies, including CHK and Chief (now Exco).
Hope this info helps
Does anyone out here know if you can find out if they have done seismic testing on land in SullivanCounty Davidison Township in the past..I do not own the land anymore but I hold the mineral rights so I know that they would have had to contact the land owners. Is there a place I can look it up? Thanks for any help you can give.
